Import google maps course to Forerunner

Ok, this is the coolest thing I ever learned to do with my Garmin Forerunner 305. Interval training? Yawn. Virtual Partner? Whatever. Back to start? Now, we're talking. But the best thing I've discovered how to do is to import maps from a mapping program like Google Maps (or Pedometer) right onto the 305 itself. While running you can view the bread crumb map of that course and ensure you're staying with it. It will even beep at you when you go off course. Of course typically we don't need this feature, but when running in a new locale, or when trying to keep on track with a difficult 20 miler this is invaluable.

Ok First things First, make a course on Google Pedometer

Second. Drag this link to your toolbar GMAP TO GPX

Third. Click on the GMapToGPX bookmark in your toolbar.

Fourth. A GPX file should be displayed over the map. Copy and paste it into a file on your hard drive. (Save it as a plain text file, using Notepad, TextEdit, emacs, or whatever your favorite text editor is. If possible, save it with the extension “.gpx”, but “.txt” ought to work, too.)

Finally head over to GPSies , upload your gpx file and choose convert to Garmin Course TCX. Then take this new TCX file and import it via Garmin's Training Center software.

Ok, it's a lot for the first time, but it gets easier after that. And it sure beats wasting time stopping to figure out "where now" while on the long run.
